Maria hails from Galicia in the North West of Spain.
Maria moved to Manchester with her family when she was 12. She wanted to be a hairdresser from a young age and has been one ever since she left school. She was trained at Nino Milano and has worked here for 25 years – she worked for the previous owner along with Nicola and Francesco and stayed when Nic took over.
Maria has good, faithful customers who she has built up a trust with over the years. Her professional skills lie in cuts and colours, she is not a stylist and doesn’t do hair up. She keeps herself up-to-date with the latest hair styles and trends by attending reguals hair shows with the rest of the team and reading trade publications and articles.
Despite Nino Milano having a student-heavy clientele, Maria tends to look after the more professional customers. She even has some of the same clients she had when she was 17 and some of her regulars travel from Hale and Bowen to be in Maria’s capable and safe hands. She prefers working with shorter hair and particularly enjoys colouring. Her own hair included, Maria likes warm autumn hues, subtle reds and caramel blondes.
Outside of the salon Maria enjoys reading, walking and spending time in her home town of Heaton Mersey in Stockport. She also likes dining out, especially checking out Spanish and tapas restaurants, and holidays. She visits her family in Spain with regular trips back home throughout the year.
